WSF Co-Founders Kathe Schaaf and Kay Lindahl collaborated to write an article for The Interfaith Observer about their spring pilgrimage to walk in the footsteps of Mary Magdalene in the south of France. The article has been one of the most popular posts ever on our WSF Facebook page, shared more than 60 times in the first 2 days.
Here are some nuggets from article:
“It was a profound experience to walk on this beautiful land and to know that the Sacred Feminine has been revered here uninterrupted for thousands of years, layers of spiritual architecture that offer a thru-line of feminine spiritual leadership from Isis to Magdalene and beyond. Something shifted in our spiritual DNA. As we came to know Mary Magdalene, we came to know ourselves in a new way.”
” In these first days of the early church, we begin to see a pattern that continues to this day: Despite what Christ himself taught and modeled, Christianity does not know what do with women – or with their gifts in service of the sacred.”
“For every powerful symbol of Mary Magdalene that we encountered in France, we also saw evidence of the persistent subjugation and even hatred of the feminine in the Christian faith. “
